I know nothing about fashion so I have a silly question. I really enjoy wearing skirts and dresses. HOwever, I have tattoos on my ankles that I am in the process of removing (therefore they look really bad) and I dont want them to be seen. What are your thoughts on wearing tights or leggings in the summer? WHich do you think are cooler?
EDIT: I am a plus size gal if that makes a difference 🙂

@bestbuddies: well, leggings would be pretty warm for the summer. So I’d say some fun patterned and colored tights would be fun!

I think tights are footed and leggings are not. But tights would be pretty hot for the summer.

Hmmm… ankles? I think tights would be your best bet, but that’s going to be pretty hot in the summer.
What about heavy cover makeup?

I guess leggings would look less weird than tights. Either that or i’d rock maxi dresses when I wasn’t wearing pants.

I prefer tights. Tights with flat boots or closed toe shoes look cute.

@teaadntoast: this is a good suggestion. I might be able to use makeup in a few months but right now they are still pretty dark….

Honestly – I think either would look a little silly in the summer.
I would tend to wear more pants (especially for work), use make-up to cover/hide them, longer maxi dresses, or wear ankle boots when the outfit permits.
Although in all honesty, I would personally just dress like normal and not care that the tattoos on my ankles looked funny.

Leggings would be way to hot for the summer and I hate to say it but tights might look a little silly during the summer too. However maybe if you live in a city/state where the weather is generally not “scortching” hot and more like a 75-85 degree summer, then I’d say you might be able to get away with wearing some really light weight tights. I’d suggest maybe wearing some jeans, khaki’s or cargo pants? It may not be your style but it might be better that your not red hot during summer. :]

Don’t know how big the tats are, but maybe you could find some of those cute sandals with ribbons that tie around the ankles to hide them? Or rock the schoolgirl socks look. Or you could find some cute boots – personally, I feel like boots plus a jean skirt or something is cooler than wearing leggings in the summer, but maybe that’s just me.

I think that they will both be pretty hot. Since leggings are thicker they might be just a tad warmer, but the tights won’t allow you to wear cute shoes or let your feet breath. Have you thought about footless tights? This might be a good solution.

i just got a pair of ankle-length leggings from victoria’s secret that are really lightweight–i love them! they’re way lighter than wearing pants, i wore them on a really hot day earlier this week (it was in the high 80s and muggy) and was really comfortable. i wear them with long shirts or really short dresses–it’s fashionable and comfortable for summer.

People wear leggins in the summer all the time! Especially the capri length ones. They are not as hot as jeans and people do wear jeans in the summer. Personally i would just try different things and what you are comfortable with

Leggings and tights are not summer gear. You will be extremely hot and look out of place. If you like dresses and skirts wear them!! There are tons of cute ankle cuff sandals or sandal booteis you can get.
